Expert Affiliate Kickstart Training Step 2: The Profitable Niche

Determining which niche will be the most successful for us takes a little research on our part.

Once we’ve selected our niche…we need to select 1 Money Keyword Phrase and 4 Secondary Supporting Keyword Phrases.

Traffic = $$$$

We will work through our niche to determine which keywords have enough interest (traffic) to put visitors on our website and buy our products.

Free Tools Method: There is a tool available from Google you can use for free to help in your keyword research. The Google Keyword Planner Tool allows us to type in our topics and find out how often our topic and its related keywords are searched on an average monthly basis.

Below is a video on how to use the Google Keyword Planner Tool for keyword research.

Get Your Website Domain

You can purchase your .com, .net, or .org domain through Namecheap.

**Note: The domain coupon codes change periodically, so the one I show in the video may not be up to date. You can visit to get the most up-to-date discount code.

Step It Up A Notch

I want you to know that you can do completely fine finding keywords using the method above.

If you are so inclined to pick up a tool to help you find and research keywords, I recommend you take a look at Market Samurai.

Market Samurai takes all the keyword research ability you get from the Keyword Planner and combines it with detailed analysis of competition and potential profitability with a few simple button clicks.

You get a 12-day Free Trial when you check out Market Samurai. They will allow you to download the program and begin using it immediately, without paying a dime or collecting any payment information.

Even if you decide not to purchase it, you can at least get nearly 2 week’s worth of free research.

And a money saving tip I learned the hard way…you have the option to purchase Market Samurai during the Free Trial period at a discounted rate. After the Free Trial, the price will rise and you will not be able to get the discount again.

Your Assignment

Now that you know how to find keywords for your niche, your assignment is to find your Money keyword phrase you will be using to market your affiliate website and product(s). Then choose your 4 Secondary keyword phrases.

It doesn’t matter whether you use just the free keyword tool, or use both the free tool and a purchased tool like Market Samurai to find your keyword phrases.

Then purchase your domain. Remember, we are only using .com, .net, or .org domains!

Again, you can purchase your .com, .net, or .org domain through Namecheap.

In Step 3, I’ll show you how to get our profitable website content that answers questions folks want answered about your keyword or niche. Until then…
